Recent Pest Activity

It’s no secret that the temperature and other seasonal conditions have an impact on pest activity. Different types of pests are significantly more active at certain times of the year, and homeowners need to be informed of potential threats they should be on the lookout for.

 

Pests to look out for

Homeowners BEWARE! As temperatures begin to fall, many types of outdoor pests increasingly invade homes seeking a warm, safe environment for the winter months.

These pests can cause a variety of different problems and can cause expensive damage to the exterior structure, insulation, and wiring of the home. As such, it is critical to identify their activity as early as possible!

 

Pest Watch

We have had a busy month dealing with a wide variety of different pests. To help homeowners be better prepared for the types of pests that they may encounter, we publish short articles each week on our website giving you the inside scoop on how different pests operate. Below you will find short summaries of some of these articles. If you are interested in finding out more, check out our website!

 

Bed Bugs on Planes!

Most homeowners are already aware of the expense and frustration that a bed bug infestation in your home can bring. You would be correct in thinking that, true to their name, bed bugs most often infest mattresses. However, the truth is, bed bugs can infest almost anywhere with correct environmental conditions access to a live host.

So the question is, how do you keep yourself safe from bed bugs during travel? Check out our website for tips and tricks to help reduce your chances of picking up bed bugs

Pharaoh Ants

Pharaoh ants are a type of pest that homeowners may not commonly be aware of. However, if you are an owner of a hospital or other business, it is possible that you have heard of these destructive pests.

Pharaoh ants often enter structures during the winter due to their attraction to artificial warmth. Once inside, they can cause mayhem by spreading throughout the structure, spreading contaminates, and infiltrating food stores. Dealing with these tiny trouble makers requires a specialized treatment approach. If you are concerned about the threat of Pharaoh ants, check out our website for the full guide to these pests.

German Roaches

A roach infestation is a nightmare for most homeowners. The fact is, roaches are an unpleasant and destructive pest, and as a responsible homeowner you are probably very anxious to ensure that your home remains roach free. Unfortunately, there are several popular misconceptions about roaches, especially when it comes to how and why they enter your home. The truth is, any structure, regardless of how new or clean it is, can be at risk for roach infestation.

To find out more about German roaches and how to keep cockroaches out of your home. Check out our detailed post on German roaches here.

House Mice

As the weather grows colder, homeowners may begin to see a uptick in wildlife pest activity on their properties. These pests are often attracted to the warmth and food inside homes, and they will often attempt to establish nesting sites in attics, basements, and other secluded areas.

 

To prevent these damaging pests from causing you significant frustration and expense, it is critical to detect their presence early. If you are concerned about potential wildlife activity in your home. Call us today and schedule a FREE wildlife inspection!

Wow, awesome service and can do attitude! We have been bothered by critters in the attic, flying squirrels, for some time. After many sleepless nights, home remedies, and ear plugs, we knew we had to do something else. We called one of the "big" companies and got a "huge" price with no other options.. We knew there had to be a better way so we called Canton Termite and Pest Control. William came out and did a thorough inside and outside inspection , quickly figured out the problem, and fixed it just about as fast. He thought the problem was solved but left traps in place for a few days. After five of the best sleep nights we have had in months we are convinced the problem has been well corrected. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Canton Termite and Pest Control for any job they feel qualified to take on. Many Thanks, Gary Brumage, Lake Arrowhead, Waleska

Just wanted to thank our exterminator Joel @Canton Termite for not only responding very quickly when we had a minor insect infestation but for ensuring we stay bug free with our normal service. He always gives us plenty of notice and arrives on time and does a very professional job. Also want to thank the entire team... Tim, Ed, William and Brent for doing an awesome job with my home and my rental homes for the last few years. Keep up the great work...

Last year the Cherokee County senior center assisted in me in finding a company to take care of a roach infestation in my home. I had tried several companies but I kept paying and the roaches never went away. William Botts with Canton Termite and Pest control came out and in 2 treatments got the job done. I am on a fixed income and appreciated the integrity and quality of this company. Today I realized I never thanked Canton Termite and Pest Control. I am thankful for what they did for me and refer my friends and anyone else who ask. They get the job done!

HONEST, HELPFUL, NOT IN BUSINESS TO RIP PEOPLE OFF! I called this company and spoke with a gentleman regarding a strange substance on the exterior of our home. I thought it might be termites because the paint was removed from the area as though it was being eaten. He asked me to email him a photo. He called me back and assured me it was not termites. He and the owner of the company gave me some suggestions of how to treat this mold-type substance. This could have easily gone in the opposite direction and charged me lots of $ to investigate a pest problem. No need to wonder if you will get a fair, honest deal with this company. They have a perfect 5 star rating because they have earned it the old fashioned way - by being honest.

I called William for a problem with carpenter bees. He was at my home within the hour. Problem solved. As we chatted I mentioned that in the spring we had birds nesting in our attic, now gone, but expected to return next year. He took the time to inspect the attic to figure out how they were getting in, and seal off the entrance... no additional charge. In short, he solved next years problem as a "good will" gesture (no pun intended). Great job. Great service. Did I mention William is now on my speed dial?
